Look for manager’s specials at your local supermarket. These are often packages of meat that need to be sold right away because it’s near the expiration date. Many chains mark their meat down only on certain days so you may need to visit your grocer on a regular basis in order to find out what this schedule is.
January is officially National Meat Month. This designation was first suggested by the American Meat Institute back in 1983. The goal then was to educate people about the benefits of eating lean beef, but it has since developed into a way for farmers to promote all types of meat eating by American consumers.
